e-Learning and the Science of Instruction
Proven Guidelines for Consumers and Designers of Multimedia Learning
Since the first edition of e-Learning and the Science of Instruction was published in 2002, e-learning has become more popular than ever. Organizations continue to turn to e-solutions to save both travel costs and instructional time.
Ruth Colvin Clark and Richard E. Mayer have thoroughly revised and updated the third edition of their best-selling book to meet the needs of today's designers, developers, and consumers. e-Learning and the Science of Instruction offers a comprehensive review of multimedia learning for both users and designers. The book's research-based information on design and development goes a long way in preparing effective e-learning solutions.
e-Learning and the Science of Instruction contains design principles that are written to increase learning while debunking many popular theories about good design. The book also includes a wealth of new topics such as e-learning for educators, new delivery technologies, and evidence-based training. Designers, developers, and consumers of e-learning can use the guidelines outlined in this practical resource to ensure that courseware meets human psychological learning requirements. The book includes best practices for communicating content with visuals, audio, and text; avoiding extraneous media effects; design examples and exercises that help learners build their skills and sharpen their problem-solving facilities; evaluation of simulations and games that are relevant to instructional goals; and much more.
The third edition also offers new storyboards from an asynchronous lesson on Excel, a synchronous lesson on Excel, and an asynchronous lesson on pharmaceutical sales.
